8:15 am
questions that makes science interesting. >> let me just say this, it is very, very heavy. i'm thinking great to grade a paper. the physical weight of the book and the content of the book is very heavy too. you make no apologies for that. >> so many books today are a mile wide and an inch deep, that's fine if it is your first exposure. we thought it was time to take you a mile deep as well. so it is the -- a tour of the universe with -- welcome to the universe, got to say it get you in there. so once you do that, you learn not only what we have come to know about the universe, but how we figured it out. and that's what we'll distinguish this book from others on the shelf. >> what is the most important thing you would like to tell us about the universe? >> i think -- >> is that a funny question? >> it is, because how often do you get asked that question? i think the universe is vast in
8:16 am
how is that? the whole opening chapter -- >> unbelievable how many stars are out there. >> yeah, yeah. so the whole opening chapter gives you a sense of the cosmic perspective. things like -- >> we had to learn we were kind of small in the universe. >> you do things like einstein's relativity. >> all the way there, you learn what einstein's discoveries and how and why it works and why we were compelled to think that way. rational people don't just normally come up and say the space time continuum is curved. what does that mean? we were compelled to go there because of the data that we obtained on the universe. this book is a survey of all that we know and how we came to know it. >> you have a whole chapter on searching for life in the galaxy. >> yes, yes, yes. and so there is a -- there is a famous way to think about that called the drake equation named after an astronomer, frank drake. >> not drake the singer? >> no. >> very good.
8:17 am
so you have a -- a simplified version, the full blown version is in the book. a simplified insightful version, start with the total number of stars in the galaxy, several hundred billion, they start hacking away at that number. what percent of those, what fraction of those have planets and which have life, which have intelligent life? which fraction have civilization that you might actually be communicating with and we give fractions and the result we come up with is about 100 civilizations in the galaxy, right now, that we can communicate. >> my 9-year-old daughter would go like this. that's mind blowing. >> what do we mean by intelligent life? >> because we're doing the defining, maybe we come upon
8:18 am
us. >> you talk about -- >> if you're making a classification and defining these civilizations, don't you have to have a definition? >> there is a clean -- brilliant question, a clean way we think about this. we're sending -- we have the capacity to send radio signals out there, which penetrates the clouds of the galaxy, and can reach its destination at the speed of light. if you have -- our civilization and can do that too, that's the >> you talked about going to mars, but you say you only go if the guy in the spaceship send his mom up first? >> yes. >> then you'll go? >> yes. i'm not, you know, i'm glad we have people who like doing stuff like that first. i'm not among them. >> let me ask you, sorry, an asteroid strike. this is so scary, we talked about this before, you say it is not a matter of if, it is a matter of when. >> of course, oh, yeah. >> catastrophic. >> yes, so depending on the size, you can measure the energy
8:19 am
climate is affected by local phenomenon, and so in the old days, you might have thought, asteroid hits here, kills everything there, but everybody else is okay. no. above certain size asteroids it wreaks havoc across the planet. and so it can render mass extinctions as what happened with the dinosaurs 65 million years ago. i bet if they had a space program, they would have deflected the asteroid, but they were dinosaurs. >> they're calling you bully. >> how do you get over pluto? what is that moveon.org, they should have a section for pluto lovers. >> we make science as exciting as entertainment and athletics. >> i'm just revealing this fact to whoever will listen or pay attention. >> we're thankful for you. >> all in the book. >> heavy book. >> thanks for being here. >> thank you for having me back. >> neil had the honor of making the first move at the world
